The bow is part of an Englishman's heritage. Henry I, King of England 1100-1135, is credited with the first official encouragement of archery. The legend of Robin Hood was handed down from around 1200, and Henry VIII in 1511 passed a law that compelled bowyers to reside in such localities as may most require their services. Being an English company and only 30 minutes from Sherwood Forest we are based in an area steeped in tradition.
Merlin's services have been required throughout the world, supplying bows to National, European and World champions. They are proud of their tradition and will continue to provide and service what they consider to be the finest bows anywhere in the world.
